Also known as 'The Rock', the federal prison once established on Alcatraz Island is synonymous with notorious bank robbers and murderers like Al Capone, 'Machine Gun' Kelly, and the 'Birdman of Alcatraz', Robert Stroud. Now empty, and managed by the National Park Service, you can explore the infamous facility on a 45-minute audio tour "Doing Time: The Alcatraz Cellhouse Tour" featuring prisoners and correctional officers who used to live and work on Alcatraz.

San Francisco is a functioning city and weather, traffic, and events may occasionally cause disruption.
Please carry a valid photo ID with you.
No refunds will be given for no-shows or missed ferry departures.
Wheelchairs can be collapsed down and stored on the bus but the buses are not equipped with ramps and therefore passengers would need to walk up 2 steps.
Would have liked more opportunities though was only able to a cess the bus for one day not two
Great way to see the city.
